Looking Back at 2014 - Day One

At the end of each year I like to look back at my blog and highlight some of my favorite cards of the year.  This has been a very exciting year for me with design work.   I can't believe I design for my favorite companies!  It's really a dream come true.

Today I'm looking back at the first half of the year...

January
January was an exciting month!  The new Pretty Pink Posh site launched and I was announced as a designer for Lil' Inker Designs!
This is still one of my favorite Christmas cards that I made this year!




February
In February we launched our second class, Basics & Beyond!

This year I've used a lot of patterned paper to line my card front.  
I love the mix of colors and patterns on this card.



March
In March, another dream came true.  I joined the WPlus9 Design Team.
I also designed for the launch of Clearly Whimy Stamps!

Another bright and colorful card, exactly what I love in the middle of Winter!



April
In April we launched another class, Cards for Him.

This card became a gift set.  Then I used this same design and changed up the colors to make another gift set.






May
StampNation joined forces with Penny Black in May and I was a guest designer over on the Penny Black blog.  The card I made for that feature was another of my favorites for the year.  You can see that here.

Are you seeing a theme with my favorites?  
Yes, I love floral stamp sets.  One can never have too many :)
 This is a different color scheme for me, I think that's why it stands out.



June
In June I launched my Pin-spired series, which I miserably failed on, haha!  Maybe I will start it up again in the new year.  I think I only made it to Pin-spired 5.  

Paulina from Pretty Pink Posh launched her first dies in June!  

And I posted my first and only video of the year. You can view it here.

Two favorites for June...


Thanks for taking a look back at 2014 with me.
I'll be back tomorrow with the second half of the year!
